Welcoming John Bree to GSC’s Advisory Board
John Bree’s Definition of “Responsible Sourcing”
Fact checking has become a full time job for many. However, for me, responsible is a very simple term:
Therefore, as we pursue new and innovative products and services, we must fairly weigh the impact on our planet and all its inhabitants. We must also be realistic that not everything we do will benefit everyone, but even though some may not benefit, they should not be harmed. If you believe in what you are doing, you should be proud to put your name on it…no hiding behind a brand or a supply chain partner.”
The Latest: Thought Leadership
“Modern slavery, with almost unfathomable contradiction, lurks in the dark and depths of the domestic and international supply chain and struts in a miniskirt in the urban gloaming under her pimp’s surveillance or pushes an infant heiress in a thousand dollar stroller across Central Park.”
Food for Thought: Smuckers, Slavery, and Seafood
“…we raised the risks of severe labor and human rights violations to its reputation for operational excellence. The proposal argued the business case and moral imperative to demonstrate its corporate responsibility to protect human rights, a tenet of the U.N. Guiding Principles on Human Rights.”
